Turning Green (TG) invited Mackenzie Feldman to speak at Project Green Challenge 2018 finals. PGC is a powerful and diverse call to action for college and high school students globally. Through 30 days of sustainability-themed challenges (from fashion to food, zero waste to body, biodiversity to economics), PGC aims to empower this generation around conscious living and mobilize action to sustain a healthy planet. 6,000 student participants from 708 schools in 49 states and 56 are countries are rockin’ the world!

Up to sixteen finalists were selected from the global pool of participants and flown to San Francisco for this four-day eco-summit. The finals are a unique and transformative experience for all who attend, bringing together an inspiring collective of dynamic eco-leaders with outstanding student leaders from across the country and around the globe. Over its seven-year history PGC has impacted approximately 35,000 students directly and millions indirectly.
